I've updated my webpage with some new ships and some updated ones.
http://www.btinternet.com/~boxzone/Othe ... l_Mass.htm
New Ships:
Strong Suspicion: Cost 213 - More heavily shielded version of the Suspicion.
Pappa Frog: Cost 238 - top of the range of the Frog series of Fighter/Bomber
Vampire Bat. Cost 111 - This started out as a modified Vampire adding Daycorns (Yellow) but I also ended up swapping a rear engine for a side one and adding more front scanners. I've flown this myself in the early missions (though it's intended as a wingman) and got a Gold Cross.
Stealth Bomber Mk2: Cost 179 - Slight modification to the Stealth bomber, adding Daycorns (Yellow) in place of the Drachan (White) and more shields, also one more command centre in place of a stealth.
Shadow Scorpion : Cost 230 - Slightly more fighter than bomber this is still a very heavily cloaked ship towards the top of the range.

Updated ships:
The whole frog range (Fat Frog/leap Frog/Bull Frog) have been tweaked (again) and now have more shields on their Right Hand Side than on their left. I'll keep discussion on why I've done this to a separate thread.

I've added some more ships (yes, I know I need to get a life but this game is just so adictive :wink: )

Liberator: Cost 160 - Midrange ship.
Sniper: Cost 140: - 7 front scanners, 8 stealth, Orik (Orange) missiles. This is intended to hit targets from well out of range without being seen.
Thistle: Cost 66: An irritating wingman (hopefully irritating the enemy rather than you)
Yarel: Cost 115: I kept starting commanders and not getting any of my existing 116 ships. Getting fed up having to fly Vampires for the first few missions so I designed this. Turns out I like it so much I fly it long after I get offered my 120ish ships.
Survivabigbubble : Cost 139 - Upgraded heavy(er) version of the survivabubble - filled the empty slots and more missiles.

I've modified one and added one.
www.btinternet.com/~boxzone/OtherGames/ ... Mass.htm
I realised I wasn't taking the Survivabubble as it only had two front scanners and I've realised that with three I can usually position myself to avoid getting hit on the first fly-by. So for the sake of one more credit I added a third front scanner.

BearPaw Cost 93: This ship is rapidly taking over 'favourite wingman' from the Penguin. A little heavier missiles and more survivable.

I think my favorite ship you made was the Liberator! It just looks so cool! Maybe I should upload some of mine on my website :roll: .

Hey Fighter_Ace, are you still going to accept design by e-mail? Because I have plenty I could send.

I'll let you guys know when I'm done with the site set-up! Afterwards, I'll tell you guys when it is ready to accept your ship designs! Hopefully I'm not too slow! Heh heh!

Oh, and boxzone_author, how do you get an exactly straight ship picture. I mean, your ships in your pictures are always flying straight! How is that done?
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.

i haven't played with this one as much as slay and conquest

My guess is that he uses the ship select screen and has a commander with the cash to afford the ships he makes. The screenshot pics show a different interface style than in the editor.
